Whether it’s for a festival look or a fancy dress event, if you’re an extra person that wants to stand out from the crowd then these glitter glue makeup looks may be the ones for you. Here’s our list of 10 glitter glue looks that are guaranteed to turn heads and elicit “wows”. Take a look below and get inspired for your next iconic take.
1. Rainbow crystals
Crystal crowns on your forehead and face are a common technique, but why not take the look further by using a rainbow of colours? A multicolour eyeshadow look to go along with your rainbow crowns will make the colours pop, and when the light hits you’re guaranteed to be a glowing rainbow princess.
2. Emerald shimmer
It’s less elaborate, but a simple two-tone look like the one below is bold and beautiful. Having a matching glitter lip and eyeliner really brings out the colour. In the look below, orange shimmer shadow was added, and it really contrasts against the green. Use contrasting colours to your advantage as they each bring out the other colour’s strengths.
It’s a simple take but it’s stunning with a hint of elegance. If glitter brows are too bold then consider strategically placing some silver glitter along your brows. It’s not too overpowering but it’s still noticeable. With a pale and glossy makeup look, you’ll be out there looking like an ice queen.
4. Golden glow
Perfect for the summer days and nights, adding some golden glow to your face will look stunning. For this look, go with a neutral, sunkissed base – so a nude lip, natural makeup and bronzer. Add some golden stars for some glowing freckles and along your eyelid as a substitute for eyeshadow.
5. Mermaid moment
Shimmer like a mermaid by packing on the glitter. The jewels and glitter do an amazing job at imitating a mermaid’s shiny scales and with this colour scheme, you’ll be totally rocking this look. Just be careful about washing out any glitter from your hair, but if you’re committed to this look then you may as well go all out.
6. No-shadow look
Although not as loud as some of the other looks, this no shadow makeup will really make your eyes pop. Pack the glitter on your eyelids and along the lower lid instead of eyeshadow. The look below also had a bright yellow eyeliner outline the eyelid, which brings even more attention to the glitter.
7. Rainbow rain
We’ve all seen a rainbow eye look but this transformation takes the creativity further by adding glitter beneath the eyes. Whether it’s a rainbow snowfall or rain, it really brings the look together and adds some shimmer to an otherwise very matte look. This makeup look will be perfect for a summer festival where the colours can really get the chance to shine.
8. Spring Sakura
It’s a very monoch0me look but this pink cherry blossom inspired take will be perfect for the spring-summer transition. There’s a lot of shimmer going on here, from the highlighter and flowers to the glitter glue brow and lids. The shine is stunning and the sparkles really add a magical appearance to an already beautiful makeup look.
9. Silver Serpent
The use of glitter and shimmer shadow do an amazing job at imitating a snake’s scales. The look below used a blue and silver which really compliment each other. It’s also a makeup look that you can get really inspired by and you can experiment with by mixing up the colour combos to make it your own.
10. Technicolour stars
Similar to the golden starry look, this glitter glue makeup look uses stars dotted across the face, but this one opts for a rainbow palette instead. The stars imitate freckles along the cheeks and forehead, and the technicolour aspect really compliments bright eyeshadows. It’ll look stunning both day and night, dazzling anyone you meet.
